Special Displays

Taj Mahal, India

On view now

Eastman Kodak produced two Coloramas that included the Taj Mahal. The first was displayed in June 1964, and included a man using a Kodak camera to make a portrait of a woman from the typical tourist’s view: the Taj Mahal as seen from the garden’s reflecting pool. This 1986 image focuses more on how a Kodak photograph may look, demonstrating a more artistic view of the site as seen across the Yamuna River.
